There is a diagnostic dilemma for pediatric Idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH), presenting rarely. Most clinicians use the Friedman et al. criteria. However, it is not appropriate because of the variability in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) opening pressure and other parameters between children less than 8 years and adults. We report two cases of IIH in children less than 8 years. Both indicate a chance of misdiagnosis using the Friedman et al. criteria in pediatric IIH. Based on our observation, a combination of Rangwala et al.'s recommendation and Friedman et al.'s criteria is suggested for diagnosing pediatric IIH in children less than 8 years of age.
